Understanding Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) can result in a wide range of injuries, ranging from minor cuts and bruises to more severe trauma affecting muscles, bones, and internal organs. Common injuries sustained in MVAs include whiplash, fractures, concussions, and soft tissue injuries.

Symptoms of Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries may include:

  • Pain: Varies in intensity and location depending on the type and severity of the injury. Pain may be acute or develop into chronic pain over time.
  • Stiffness: Particularly in the neck, shoulders, and back.
  • Headaches: Often accompanied by neck pain or stiffness, and may be indicative of a concussion.
  • Numbness or tingling: In the extremities, indicating nerve involvement.
  • Difficulty concentrating: Cognitive symptoms may arise following a head injury or concussion.
  • Emotional distress: Anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop in response to the accident.

Chronic Pain Treatment for Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

While some injuries sustained in motor vehicle accident may heal with time and appropriate treatment, managing chronic pain is essential for improving symptoms and restoring function.


Over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen or NSAIDs can help alleviate pain and inflammation. Prescription medications may be necessary for more severe pain.
Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy involves the administration of medication directly into the bloodstream via intravenous (IV) or subcutaneous (under the skin) routes. This treatment method is often used for managing chronic pain when other treatments have been ineffective.


In cases where conservative treatments fail to provide relief or for severe injuries, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair or reconstruct damaged tissues.


Cannabis shows promise as a potential treatment for chronic pain, but its effectiveness varies among individuals, and more research is needed to understand its long-term effects fully.
Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is a holistic approach to pain management that involves the manipulation of soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. It can be an effective complementary treatment for chronic pain conditions, providing relief from muscle tension, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation.


Injections such as epidural steroid injections or nerve blocks may provide targeted pain relief for specific injuries or conditions.
Traditional Chinese therapy involving the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to promote relaxation, reduce pain, and improve overall well-being.

Dr. Sharma and her staff provide me with pain management in so many forms, and this clinic is the most valuable resource in providing me with better quality of life.

Rachel Moxam

Our daughter has a degenerative disorder which involves both chronic and acute pain. Dr. Sharma has been instrumental in helping to manage our daughter’s pain; she listens to our daughter and has implemented a personalized, comprehensive pain management program, which she assesses and modifies as our daughter’s condition changes. Dr. Sharma has been a major part of our lives for a number of years now, and when she opened the Avella Injury and Pain Clinic, we followed her here.
